Area and perimeter of rectangles/squares

It is very versatile and makes many different kinds of problems related to the area and perimeter of rectangles and squares.

You can make:

- problems for the area and perimeter of rectangles and squares, with grid images or normal images
- word problems, including ones asking for a side length when area or perimeter is given
- problems with irregular rectangular shapes
- problems to practice distributive property with two-part rectangular areas (required by Common Core Standards in 3rd grade).

I especially made this worksheet generator because I feel many children may have some difficulty with the new Common Core Standards requirement for 3rd grade, that is 3.MD.7.c

You can generate worksheets for this exact standard! They can look like this:"Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths a and b + c is the sum of a × b and a × c. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning."

or you can ask children to draw the two-part rectangle.

Here are some quick links for you to try the generator:

- Draw a rectangle with given area, or find the area of a given rectangle (grid image; about 2nd grade)
- Draw a rectangle with given area, or find the area of a given rectangle (grid image; 3rd grade)
- Find the area and perimeter of the given rectangle (grid image)
- Find area, perimeter, or the missing side length (rectangle image; 3rd - 4th grade)
- Find area, perimeter, or the missing side length (word problem or rectangle image; 3rd - 4th grade)
- Fill in a number sentence for the two-part rectangle, thinking of one rectangle or two (distributive property) (3rd grade Common Core standards; in your browser options, make sure background colors get printed)
- Draw a two-part rectangle to match the given number sentence for its total area (distributive property) (3rd grade Common Core standards; in your browser options, make sure background colors get printed)
- Draw a rectangle OR write its area using distributive property (3rd grade Common Core standards, mixed practice)
- Find the area and perimeter of irregular rectangular shapes (grades 4-5)
- A variety of problems about area and perimeter (grades 4-5; in your browser options, make sure background colors get printed)
